A pen that's truly built for adventure! The Traveler's Company brass fountain pen is a perfect companion for on-the-go writing. Its durable and solid construction paired with a super-portable size make it a perfect choice for the pocket. This pen accepts standard international short cartridges only - a great choice for quick and effortless ink refueling. At the top of the snap cap, you'll also find a sturdy ring that further adds to the pen's versatility. Unscrewing the ring allows you the option of removing the steel clip if you'd prefer a more streamlined profile. Matching the clip is a stainless steel fine nib that will provide you with a reliable writing experience wherever your day takes you.
Brass will become tarnished when in use and develop an individual patina over time.
From Traveler's Company:
Our BRASS PRODUCTS writing instruments range is made in Japan by experienced craftspeople. Robust and easy to use, this stationery is designed to become a faithful companion in the journey of your life. As you use your BRASS PRODUCTS on a daily basis, you will develop the fondness that every devoted craftsperson has for their tools. The limited-edition Factory Green color was inspired by that manufacturing setting. Green is used for the floors, doors and shelves in many factories because it’s easy on the eye and evokes a sense of safety that provides peace of mind.
Our own factory in Nagareyama does just that—the steel shelves filled with cans of printing ink, the floors where our rows of printers create an impressive, almost solemn sight and the heavy iron doors are just some of the elements that are painted in green. When you visit the factory, you can see that those areas of green paint have faded and even peeled in places, but this, too, is a point of pride—those flaws are the result of decades of use and represent a long history of producing TRAVELER’S notebooks and many other paper products, working diligently day after day.
The factory where our brass products are made, on the outskirts of Tokyo, also uses a lot of green for machinery such as its presses and metal cutters. Oil has darkened those green machines during their years of use, but they have a beauty that is difficult to put into words.
Pick up one of our Factory Green Brass Pens and you’ll find yourself thinking of the factory floors where the things we use every day are made, and feel the same sense of safety that those green surfaces inspire in the workers. Let your Factory Green Pen be a talisman for the journey of your life. Through years of use, the paint will fade and the hue will change, creating that same beauty borne through hard work that can be seen in so many long-running factories.
